          We are a team of curious and exuberant students from Pune Institute of Computer Technology(PICT), Pune. The PICT Robocon Team participates in ABU ROBOCON every year. PICT ROBOCON TEAM is made entirely of engineering students trying to get the most out of their educational experience by taking on a project of designing, developing and building a robot every year to compete in ABU ROBOCON. The team consists of about 40 passionate students from various engineering disciplines driven to work to achieve our final goal of building an efficient robot to participate in ABU ROBOCON.


         The Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon) is an Asian Oceanian College robot competition, founded in 2002 by Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union.Every year a theme is released by a host country. There are several tasks to be done in the theme. In the competition, robots compete to complete a task within a set period of time. The contest aims to create friendship among young people with similar interests who will lead their countries in the 21st century. The event is live broadcasted in many countries through ABU member broadcasters.

          This year, the theme is ‘NEM CON’, the folk game of Vietnam, symbolizing prosperity and happiness. In this, each team has to build two bots: a manual and an autonomous bots. The autonomous bot follows a line on its own, position and throw the Vietnamese shuttlecock through the rings placed at different positions and heights. The team that completes the task fastest, wins.(


          Students from all classes, departments and every regions of India are welcomed here. Robocon India is organized by MIT Pune and Doordarshan under ABU. Every year it takes place in month of February. Robocon India is place where students can indulge their curiosity and the passion for robotics and dare to go beyond the boundaries of your academics to explore real life applications of their knowledge. Learn new technologies and be exposed to national level competitions. The students also get to interact with over 120 colleges from all over the country, learn about designs, ideas and methods. Each college have maximum 40 members in their team.(


In 2017, Japan, as the host country had declared the theme“ The Landing Disc ”

• Teams were given a set of discs which they were supposed to land on the poles of varying heights and distances.

• The team that was able to land at least one disc on each pole (Appare) was declared as the winner of the game.

• We stood 11th rank in India.

In 2016, the theme was “ Clean EnergyRecharging the world ”

• The crux of the theme was to move a robot (eco-bot)through indirect energy transfer using another robot(Hybrid bot ) through a given path.

• Pick up a component from the eco-bot at the end of the path, climb the pole using the hybrid bot and place the picked up component at the top of the pole completing a windmill.

In 2015, the theme was“ Robominton ”

• The theme demanded us to build robots that could play a doubles game of badminton on a real sized court.

• The robots were either manual or autonomous.

In 2014, the theme was “ A salute to parenthood ”

• We were challenged to make robots which performed tasks of playing see-saw,swing and jungle gym.

• One of the robots, which was also called as parent robot, had to be manually controlled while the other one, called as a child robot, had to work autonomously.

• PICT ROBOCON stood 4th all over India.


• Introductory workshop for freshers in PICT.

• Educational Seminar for the students of 'Rani Laxmibai Mulinchi Sainiki Shala,Pirangut' to indulge them in Robotics. 

Budget Plan:

1. Robot research and development cost- Rs.2,00,000
2. Material Cost-Rs.40,000
3. New Equipment's Cost-Rs.70,000
4. Robot Fabrication - Rs.30,000
5. Team Registration- Rs.30,000



          The development of the project relies a lot on the support received from various contributors. We, therefore need your help to achieve our goal. We hope you make a contribution to PICT ROBOCON and be a part of the success story of dozens of youth.
